Hike to the Cup Stone



CUP STONE:For our aggro archeology class we were assigned to sketch the cup stone. Through Tirol, several large stones have been found that have cup indentations on the surface, it is unknown what they were used for but it is known that they were created . Perry, Sarah, Amy, Dustin and Elise set out on the hour hike one beautiful Sunday.

The stone was not as impressive as we had imagined, however the view of the valley was spectacular. There were about 13 one-inch round hollows and a cross or "X" covering about five feet of the rock.

Perry found a branch and cleaned off

the cup stone so we could see the cups better.

Amy wondering if we walked an hour

to see these tiny hollows.
